Peyton Lee and his dad, of Picayune MS lodged at Sweetwater Marina with Mr Greg of Bayou Plumbing. The fellas had a great time fishing for some fresh water Catfish yesterday.

It was a nice sunny day for some good fishing! Earnie, Leo and grandson Ashton lodged at Sweetwater Marina the last few days. Mr. Leo has been working a lot and promised a fishing trip to Ashton. The guys are definitely making memories this week! The fellas went on the outside past Black Bay and Stone Island to the west. Shout out to Ashton for the huge catch and release!!! My favorite retired gentlemen came back with 2 nephews and caught a 4 man limit of Redfish, a few Sheepshead and Drum. They said it wasn’t as difficult as Tuesday’s trip but, they didn’t jump in the boat like they are use to in their regular spots in Spanish Lake and Little Lake.

Mr. & Mrs. Carley King (Congratulations on the recent nuptials) had an awesome day, in Oak River. As usual, the King family always has a great time fishing and launching at Sweetwater Marina.

Low humidity made for a bearable warm day! The Redfish are out there... did you get in on the fishing today? Although the anglers I spoke with caught some really beautiful Redfish, it wasn’t an easy catch today. You had to work... but the reward was worth it! 😉. Sweetwater’s favorite retired fellas said they went all over Delacroix today, and they caught their 4 man limit of Redfish, but it wasn’t easy.... They had to catch almost a hundred little ones to get to the keepers. They went from Spanish Lake to Four Horse for their 20 Redfish.

If you want to go fishing...This is the week to do it!!! The humidity is low with the cold front that pushed in this weekend. It will still be warm, but not as humid, and that mostly effects you, not the fish. 😉👍 The water clarity is good. They have some really clean pockets on the inside. The water is a little lower this week, but that will keep the Redfish in those pockets. Mr. Mark caught his limit of Redfish today in Spanish Lake. He had a short hit-and-run trip this week. We will be looking forward to seeing him again in a couple weeks from ATL. So if your planing to go Redfishing the Grand Lake, Little Lake area is for you . 😉👍 If your looking for trout. Black Bay is the place to be, an angler came in with a limit of Trout south of Black Bay near Stone Island. Want to know where the fish are or need someone to clean you fish? Ask for Tony.

Despite the crazy weather. Capt. Calvin had a charter with Dexter, Dom, and Dan. The fellas had a great time on their first charter and said they can’t wait to do it again. They were telling me that they went fishing 2 weeks ago in their own boat and caught nothing, so even though their trip was cut short by weather. They had the best time ever.

It’s been a Redfish kinda day, if you came to Delacroix to fish... it wasn’t difficult to find Redfish. From Lake John to Spanish Lake you will have no problem finding a Redfish. Capt Jack had a charter with one of his awesome frequent flier customers, Mr. Ryan and he brought his friend Mr. Kelly. The fellas had their limit of Redfish with plenty throw backs.

It was a beautiful day at Sweetwater Marina. The Redfish are poppin’. Where are you? Ryan and Shane had a 2 man limit of Redfish out of Lake John today. The fellas said it was 9 am before they caught their 1st fish, so they turned on the radio and the fish started jumping.

It's going to be hard to fish a place to tick in out of the wind this Saturday, maybe a few little spots directly across from the marina where you might be able to get out of the wind. And we should have live shrimp.

We are very sorry you didn't enjoy your experience staying with us at Sweetater Marina. We value all of our customers and welcome their feedback. To that end Capt. Jack spent some time today going through the towels and checking the lights in the rooms to see if they need to be changed or could have higher watt bulbs in them and just generally checking all the rooms. We will also be making sure all rooms have an extra set of sheets, a blanket and a pillow in the drawers under the bunk beds. As for being pricey, we feel that our prices on shrimp and gas are competitive with other Marina's in the area and are more than fair. And we know it's a hike up the stairs, but since we were built after Katrina we had no choice. However, we do take issue with your claim that there was no sofa sleeper in your room. Rooms 2-5, we believe you were in room 5, absolutely all have a full size sofa sleeper (although Capt. Jack recommends just sleeping on ythe sofa though because the sofa bed is not very comfortable). Again, we appreciate your business and the feedback and are changing some things because of it and hope you will give us another try next time you are in Delacroix.

we would love to see you tomorrow morning at Sweetwater Marina. Capt. Jack will not be there until a little later tomorrow, but just ask for Mr. Ronnie. He will be able to point you in the right direction and put you on the fish. Hopefully Capt. Jack will be there when you get back. You picked a good time for your 1st Delacroix fishing trip. The fishing has been great this year. Good luck.

We are very sorry about your experience. Having all been in similar situations we would hope that rules would be bent and common sense employed. We also know our young staff understands how important customer service is to us at Sweetwater and we see them go above and beyond on a daily basis to make sure anyone launching at Sweetwater has a great experience. Capt. Jack has already made some phone calls and dscussed how to better handle this type of situattion in the future. As always, we appreciate any input from our customers, good and bad.

A comment titled: Re: stranded on the water in response to a report titled: stranded on the water

Capt.Jack just read this post and is very sorry that you got stuck and we were unable to help, but to be fair, Capt. Jack always goes the extra mile not only for his customers, but anyone who needs help. Just a couple of weeks ago he purchased bamboo, then in addition to the $ spent on the bamboo, spent an entire day with one of his employees to mark the channel to help keep folks from getting stuck. On one Saturday last month we had 5 people call who were stuck and wanted to get towed in. In almost all cases an airboat was needed, Jack couldn't get to them even if he had been here. That day and on many other days we spend countless time on the phone with the St. Bernard Sheriff, Coast Guard and Sea Tow. We made sure everyone made it in even though Jack couldn't help them himself. And please keep in mind that Capt. Jack is not always here. Running a Marina entails much more than sitting in the bait shop helping launch boats. We appreciate everyone who defended Sweetwater And Capt. Jack. We love our customers, ya'll are great. We are also in full agreement about Sea Tow. BECOME A MEMBER. We are also truly sorry for this anglers experience, while we try to make everyone's experience down here in Delacroix a good one (even if you don't launch here), unfortunately you can't please everyone. That goes for any business and life in general.

A comment titled: Captain Jack - Sweetwater Marina in response to a report titled: !!!!BEWARE OF SERINGE'S LAUNCH!!!!!

Capt. Jack doesn't have a feud with anyone and has always been willing to work with and be helpful to anyone and everyone he meets. Those of you who are regulars at Sweetwater and have met Jack know this already. He is working very hard to get his shrimp boat up and running and to get fuel put in to make his business better, not to put anyone out of business. Once he has live bait and fuel on a regular basis it will be available to anyone, no matter where they launch. His goal is not and has never been to put anyone out of business. Anyone who fishes Delacroix regularly knows there is plenty of business to go around.

A comment titled: Spechound in response to a report titled: 2/4/14 : Terrible Fog

Thanks Spec hound. Captain Jack couldn't get them today though. He went out with Captain C.T. for a fish and game report. They tried for trout, on top and bottom, they did not bite today. He said they caught a few here and there. They limited out on Reds in Oak River. Reds arejust as good as tey have been.

Unfortunately we will be out of live shrimp this weekend. Captain Jack suggests getting your shrimp at Gulf Outlet Marina or Bait Inc. before you head out here to Delacroix.
